The market town of Arundel is situated in leafy West Sussex, a stone's throw from the Sussex coast and filled with stylish art galleries, independent shops and plenty of chic restaurants and bars.
You'll find an abundance of shops in the stylish town centre, from craft and gift shops to tiny delis selling delicious local produce and boutiques shops. Dining in Arundel is an eclectic mix of cosy gastro pubs, quaint tearooms, independent restaurants as well as more well-known high street names and traditional family-run establishments; most are happy to cater for children.
If you're travelling with the family, the magnificent Arundel Castle is open from April to October and makes a great choice for a family day out. The kids will love letting off steam in the gardens, or look out for the seasonal program of fun events, including civil war re-enactments and the annual MG Owners' Club Gathering. For a bit more culture and an insight into local history, make sure you don't miss Arundel Museum and Bignor Roman Villa.
